3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is fruit, malt, chocolate, spice. All mild tho. Med body, or nearly. Somehow the mix of flavors isn’t working right. Reminding me of an age old candy bar I didn’t really like very much. Never stopped me then, but it might now. There’s fruit and pepper and chocolate in the finish. Some citrus, I guess. But comparing this to a Flanders Red? Well maybe it is a bit tart. Still.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a hazy orangish red appearance with little head. Buttery, tangy red fruity, herbal aroma. Lots of green apple and butter in the flavor with some other light fruity elements to help a bit. All over the place and not very good.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Supposed to be "sour" My Ass! this one is pretty insipid, light spiciness but not much else.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale ruddy colour with a white head. The aroma is really fruity and and kind of tart. Has a little bit of juiciness and a vaguely wheaty spiciness. There is vaguely garbagey aroma though and it’s both too sweet and oddly tart at the same time. An uninteresting yeast choice doesn’t help either. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Metallic malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet tart cherry/hibisucus malt flavor. Decent body. Okay - decent for a Blue Moon beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour on tap at the Denver Summer Brew Fest, dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of really weird sewage, caramel, and husky grains, some slight bready notes, hints of berries, very odd. Taste is weird sewage, rotten berries, some slight yeast, sweet caramel, finishing sweet with more off flavors. Really not good.
